Hello my friends! If you wondered why I wasn’t around yesterday, it was Vanderbilt tour day and long drive home to Columbus day, so I didn’t post. AND today is Themed Furniture Makeover Day, resulting in a Monday-Thursday-Friday schedule this week. I hope you’re okay with that. I am SO EXCITED to share a long overdue makeover with you. We received a set of oak TV tray tables for a wedding gift, and they have been well used, resulting in quite the worn finish on the table tops. With a little paint I now have some farmhouse style TV tray tables that I LOVE.
Here’s where we started, your standard set of tables. Do you call these TV tray tables too?
I chose to use Re-Purpose paint for this project, it doesn’t require much prep work (I just cleaned the table tops, since the original finish had almost completely worn off), and it doesn’t need to be waxed or sealed. This little “Try It” size is around $10.
Here’s a shot of the first table top with one coat.
And after the second coat.
Next I used some cardboard stencils to add numbers to the top. For this I used Martha Stewart Multisurface Craft paint in a dark gray shade.
I sanded the tops well to distress the paint and then added two coats of poly since they will be used for eating.
I kind of love them. :)
I will definitely be excited to pull these out when we have guests.
There’s only one problem. Three out of four of them look like this when they are folded.
Thank you thank you thank you for stopping by today!! If you love this post, put a pin in it! :) Thanks for sharing!
